The discovery of an ancient Circaetus in SW Bulgaria

Oct 25, 2014 / Comment

A fossil representative of the Circaetus genus was discovered in South-Western Bulgaria /map/. The birds had already lived in ancient Europe more than 7 millions of years ago; although, their origin from Africa is suggested as very probable. The paper is available on a website of the journal Acta zoologica bulgarica:
